Hizbullah "Raad" (Katyousha) rockets hit Nahariya, Safed, Haifa and Carmiel today (see map below). Raad is a modified Katyousha rocket with a 33 CM diameter and 100 KG warhead. Hizbulla denied firing rockets at Haifa, but two rockets fell there nonetheless. Various explanations were sought for the Hizbullah denial. It never seemed to occur to anyone that they might just be lying.




The violence that began with the kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers and killing of three others represents a total failure of international law and of the UN. Lebanon is in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions 1559 and 1680, which call for disarming of militias. Instead of disarming the Hizbullah, the Lebanese took them into the government. Therefore, the current violence is an act of war of the Lebanese government.

Below is the full text of UN Resolution 1559 for reference.

Security Council
5028th Meeting (Night)

Security Council declares support for free, fair presidential election in Lebanon; calls for withdrawal of foreign forces there

Resolution 1559 (2004) Adopted by Vote Of 9 in Favour, to None Against, with 6 Abstentions

The Security Council this evening declared its support for a free and fair presidential election in Lebanon conducted according to Lebanese constitutional rules devised without foreign interference or influence and, in that connection, called upon all remaining foreign forces to withdraw from Lebanon.

By a vote of 9 in favour (Angola, Benin, Chile, France, Germany, Romania, Spain, United Kingdom, United States) to none against, with 6 abstentions (Algeria, Brazil, China, Pakistan, Philippines, Russian Federation), the Council adopted resolution 1559 (2004), reaffirming its call for the strict respect of Lebanon's sovereignty, territorial integrity, unity, and political independence under the sole and exclusive authority of the Government of Lebanon throughout the country.
...

The meeting began at 7:38 p.m. and was adjourned at 8:38 p.m.
